Heres my profound, life changing statement.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

It has never happened yet but if you try to sneak out a bike, I can imagine you will get a beatdown on the spot. It is quite obvious when someone starts rolling a bike out of the judging area while the show is going on, as the owners will never do that.

Re: Bmx Show's who goes to them.....And how safe are your bike's there !

Most of us all know each other at the local shows.  Most of us also know the bikes of others that frequent the shows.  We have also built connections and/or friendships at these shows and we all look after each other.  Fortunately, I frequent the shows with at least one of my three children.  My bikes always have an eye on them.  Anything is possible and I'm sure it has happened, but not that I am aware of.  I'd be more concerned with someone ripping me off from stealing a bike part on the table for the swap meet.

Re: Bmx Show's who goes to them.....And how safe are your bike's there !

I was at a show in Rockford this summer and a guy was saying 3 bikes were stolen at a show he was at during the award presentation. While everyone is gathered up watching the presentation some bikes were being rolled out of there from behind. A couple shows I attend are so crowded and so many bikes coming and going it would not be hard to leave with one. I always try to keep tabs on my stuff but it's hard. Get talking to people or check out the swap area and things can happen fast. As with anything, use some caution.

I had my bike stolen at a track.
Theft can happen anywhere.  It's best to go to a show with one or more people so they can watch your bike or the things you're selling while you get a beer.  If you value your bike,  you don't let it out of your Site.

No bikes have been stolen from the locals shows I've attended,but we did have a few people steal product from the show vendors table.

...Btw whoever you are that did it,you're lucky I did not catch you,cause I would have broken your fingers!!!!!!!!!!!

Not to discourage anyone's belief in bike safety at shows, but didn't some stuff get boosted from Crown Point a couple of years ago?  I generally don't bring much to show or sell, but I definitely make sure plenty of my buddies are around to keep an eye on things.  In my experience, crews do an excellent job of looking after each other's stuff, but also when sellers step away from their tables, and buyers are looking to make deals.

I think you're overthinking it. Just go and have fun!

If you're really really worried then just sit in front of your bike all day and keep an eye on it... that would be NO FUN though. That, or just leave it at home and attend the show without a bike.

Here's one of our local Gary Turner shows. (Find Gary if you can!!) It's a small, tight knit community and everybody knows who owns what. I don't think anyone has ever had a bike stolen at the BMX mecca:

Re: Bmx Show's who goes to them.....And how safe are your bike's there !

I will say that the only thing I really like about bike shows is getting together with friends whom I rarely see.  Sure, plenty of cool and interesting bikes are there to look at, along with opportunities to buy and sell, but I prefer riding with said friends FAR more than being sedentary with them.  Greasing the rails with a bit o' shine helps me deal with this problem...
